Over Consumption: Media + Our Relationship With Food

*This is one of the featured films from the 2021 Changing Minds Young Filmmaker Festival.

“Over Consumption” shows the social contradiction on food and health issues that people living in modern society are facing. I saw many people either be obsessed with food, feel pressure into over-exercising, or become envious of a specific body type, by the massive amount of contradictory information from the media.

Through my film, I want ask to the audience an important question: Is it possible that we might be overeating, over-exercising, and over-consuming due to the influence from broadcast media?
Talking about mental health helps to improve one’s mind, to not feel self-conscious, and to love for oneself.
